What is Cradle Cap?

Cradle Cap

You look at your baby and she’s just perfect! Those tiny hands and soft baby skin…she’s such a miracle. But wait, what is that scaly stuff on her scalp. It looks like wax ,it’s thick and yellow and not pretty.  Did you use the wrong shampoo, is she sick? Should you call the pediatrician?

Sounds like your baby has cradle cap and it’s very common.  It usually rears it’s ugly head  those first few months of life. It’s not contagious and should clear up on it’s own in six to twelve months. The scalp may look dry and flaky or it can have thick oily yellow or brown patches.  You don’t need to call the doctor unless it becomes inflamed.

Here are what some moms from the Berkeley Parents Network did to get rid of cradle cap.

  • Use the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner. Make sure it doesn’t go in the eyes as it’s not a “baby shampoo” but it worked. We use it every so often to prevent it from coming back. Sara
  • Rub olive oil on the baby’s scalp so it softens the cradle cap. Then use  a comb to gently scrape the scales away. Shampoo as usual. It took two or three times for the scales to be completely gone.       Cathy
  • At bath-time, rub baby’s scalp with oil. Brush the scalp in a circular motion as this seems to loosen the flakes. Then use a comb to get out the little flakes. I used baby oil and did not shampoo afterward. Seemed to work better letting it soak in and moisturize the scalp. Eve
  • My nurse friend said to use a little Head and Shoulders shampoo. It worked like a charm! Be careful not to get it into the baby’s eyes. Elaine
  • My hairdresser told me to rub baby oil or jojoba oil on the scalp to loosen the cradle cap. Then shampoo. It worked perfectly and never came back. But it wasn’t easy to get the oil out.
  • Try using a soft toothbrush and mineral oil. Susie
  •  If your baby is still nursing, take a couple of tables of Brewers Yeast for a few days. This is an old remedy for cradle cap. Peg

The consensus is to use some type of oil on the scalp and gently comb or brush out the flakes. Don’t forget, a little cradle cap doesn’t take anything away from this beautiful miracle you’ve created….your baby!

Pediatrician Dr. Alan Greene says: Cradle cap is a crusting and scaling rash found on the scalps of many healthy babies. The sebaceous glands in their skin are hyperactivated often because of mom’s hormones that crossed the placenta just before birth. These glands pump out a greasy substance that keeps the old skin cells attached as it dries.

You’re expecting your first baby, what could be more exciting? Planning for a new baby is fun and decorating the nursery is even better, What kind of crib should you buy? Do you need a swing?  Should you buy a high chair now or later?  Questions, questions and more questions. There are so many products to choose from and each year  something new comes on the market that every parent thinks she must have.

The first rule of thumb when planning your nursery is to sit down and make a list of items you think you will need. Some of the items are must-haves. But it’s not always easy to know what will actually make you and your baby’s life simpler or what’s just the newest trend.

Once you have your list, set a budget and try your hardest to stick to it. You can buy baby furniture and equipment for as little as three dollars and up into the thousands. Many times you will find yourself returning items you thought you would need but realize aren’t necessary once the baby is born.

The following list will help you create a well-outfitted nursery for your precious baby.

  • Convertible Car seat with two bases(one for each car), to safely bring baby home.
  • Standard-sized crib. (30”x 54”)
  • Standard-sized crib mattress (27 ¼ “ x 52”) Organic crib mattresses are available.

  • Waterproof crib mattress pad
  • 4 fitted crib sheets (28” x 52”) for standard crib.
  • Musical crib mobile with remote for turning on and off

  • Armoire for storage if the room has no closet.
  • Changing Table or Chest of Drawers with Changing Pad on top.
  • Baby swing
  • Musical bouncy seat with vibration and above-head toy attachment.
  • Baby positioner to cradle baby’s head and neck in swing, stroller or car-seat.
  • Exercise ball to help with a colicky or cranky baby. Jill from Arizona says, “ Logan stopped crying as soon as I held him and gently bounced up and down, a real life-saver!”
  • Diaper pail and replacement bags, available in different styles.
  • Baby hamper.
  • Trash can.
  • 3 binky’s

  • Diaper bag with changing pads and pockets to hold supplies.
  • Baby window shade for the car.
